Asking Why and Why and Why — The Learner's Way

13 August, 2017 - 17:31

Comments:

  • As children, we ask “Why?” a lot. It is a part of childhood, that special time when the many forces acting upon our cognitive development converge around a singular desire to ask “Why”. It becomes the central focus of our conversational style, an incessant exclamation into the void which tests the patience of any nearby adult. But asking "Why" offers so much more. - Nigel Coutts

Taking risks outside our comfort zone — The Learner's Way

6 August, 2017 - 19:05

Comments:

  • Possibly the most dangerous place to spend too much time is inside your comfort zone. Only when we take a risk and step away from the safety of the familiar and the ways we have always done things do we expose ourselves to new ideas and become open to the possibility of learning and discovery. The trouble is having the confidence to take that first step, to embrace discomfort and become open to the risks that come with trying something new. - Nigel Coutts

Why such a rapid pace of change? — The Learner's Way

30 July, 2017 - 18:35

Comments:

  • I am currently reading “Thank you for being late: An optimist’s guide to thriving in the age of accelerations” and have found in this the answer to these questions. In essence we are confronting two types of change, one that we have always faced and one that is unique to our current times.  - Nigel Coutts
